WHAT IT IS
Cutera is an extremely precise laser used to treat both deep, and surface vascular conditions as well as pigmented skin lesions.
WHAT IT CAN TREAT
• Port wine stains
• Facial veins
• Leg veins
• Age spots
• Skin tags
• Acne scars
• Scar reduction
HOW IT WORKS
Micro-pulses of laser energy gently heat the different levels of the skin. The temporary thermal treatment increases the skin’s collagen production, breaks down damaged capillaries and shrinks pores on the skin’s surface.
2 – 3 treatments are usually required
COMFORT LEVEL OF PROCEDURE
Very comfortable and relaxing.
Gentle warming of skin’s surface.
AREAS OF TREATMENT
Face, legs, neck, hands, and feet are most common but may be used on any area of the body where the above conditions occur.
COMMON RISKS & SIDE EFFECTS
Safe on all skin types including dark or sensitive skin. Redness, bruising, small blisters may occur.
Slight redness for few minutes or hours.
Avoid high impact activity for 3-5 days (leg vein treatment only)
Avoid sun exposure, saunas, hot tubs, etc for 1 – 2 days after treatment
